Young entrepreneur Matt Morton builds on his life experiences to open his own business

Flipping over a page of scratch paper, Matt Morton, owner of the Jimmy John’s located off of FM 544, sketches out a couple of randomly placed dots.

“Have you ever heard the Steve Job’s speech?” Morton said. “It was a great speech he gave at a commencement ceremony I think at Stanford. He said that there’s a lot of stuff in life that he didn’t know would help him later. He was making dots. He said that all of these activities and jobs we do create points along the way. He never knew he would be able to connect them going backwards, but if you don’t make them going forwards, you would never be able to build and learn from them.”

Only at the age of 25, Morton has achieved in connecting his own twisting line of dots. He created his plan and followed with timed execution, which led him to his success in opening his own business, a dream he has held close since childhood.
